Xiaomi 12X may be the brand’s most affordable premium smartphone

Xiaomi introduced the 12-series globally on March 15, 2022. Sorted from less to most premium, it has comprised of three devices which include Xiaomi 12X, 12, and 12 Pro. Although it doesn’t lack a plethora of flagship features, Xiaomi 12X remains the smallest device out of the series. It also remains identical to the Xiaomi 12 in everything but the chipset — of equal size, weight, and even colors. Currently, it has the most powerful hardware within a small body and under a 1080p display.

Display and Body

The Xiaomi 12X has a 6.28-inch display featuring a visually pleasing blend of glass and metal. It features an AMOLED screen with a Full HD resolution panel with curved sides with a punch-hole camera, and a Gorilla Glass Victus protects it together with a thin screen protector. Aside from that, the curved display transitions neatly into the curved back cover which creates a solid single unit.

It also has a dynamic 120Hz refresh rate and 480Hz touch response. The Xiaomi 12X also features a Dolby Cision support that comes with 12-bit native color support for each pixel. This, then, allows showing over 68-billion colors. Its high display brightness acts very well usable outdoors, and users will have no major issues reading the display even in direct bright sunlight. 

Performance and Software

Running on Android 11 with the brand’s MIUI 13 user interface, its security patches remained up to date. Its chipset also includes Qualcomm SM8250-AC Snapdragon 870 5G. This, then, enables insanely fast 5G connectivity with peak speeds up to 7.5Gbps. Aside from that, it also offers the improved Kryo 585 CPU which performs intense mobile computing at up to 3.2GHz.


The front-facing selfie camera features a 32-MP sensor without pixel binning producing photos rich in detail. The camera app’s software manages to place the focus directly on the user’s face resulting in a decent photo which improved with a variety of beauty filters. When taking a selfie, it will default put in a 3:4 ratio with options for 1:1, 9:16, or entire display ratio.

The triple-camera at the back, on the other hand, remains powered with Sony’s 50 MP IMX766 sensor. Anyone can also find this feature on the Xiaomi 12. With a 13 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 123-degree field of view, a 5-MP macro lens, photos in daylight turn out sharp and rich in detail. This makes color pop yet with a slight shift of red hue.

The camera also fares decently well in low-light situations, as well as good video stabilization and video quality. Aside from that, the highest supported solution for videos remains 8K at FPS. Users can also seamlessly switch between the main and the ultra-wide-angle camera when recording in 4K and 30 FPS or record in 4K and 60 FPS using the camera only.
